In Praise of the British Colonial Administrator
This is the memoir of a British Colonial Officer in Northern Nigeria between 1908-18. It is very well written, it describes the work, environment and local people with affection and humour. It also describes the hard life of the dedicated colonial officer who risked his health and frequently his life. For the uneducated who in their ignorance chose to criticise the administration, I suggest that you read the book carefully several times. It will be time better spent than on Facebook.
